Find the right group, and all is well. US and Canada Tech Writers are paid hourly with OT. How much OT allowed varies by manager.

    Pros

    It was very relaxed and definitely really chill. The location of Cisco is pretty good because it's in San Jose and is pretty close to some nice food places.

    Cons

    I definitely felt like I did not learn too much. I didn't really ever feel challenged. Also, there are way to many meetings. So much that it is difficult to get any work done. Half the time, I feel like the meetings aren't very useful too.

    Advice to Management

    The management was good with respect to my mentors. I really liked them.
